    Hi Chris,

    sorry to bother you but I need a helping hand from someone who knows how to troubleshoot.

    So I got a new problem with my wtec3 push pad.
    Bus starts ok but when I try to shift into gear, I get cat eyes and check trans light turns on.
    When I depress both the up and down button one time so I can pull codes, nothing happens.

    I'm working on the assumption the tcu is good because it starts up and the high idle switch does work ok.

    How else can I pull codes on the tranny? is there a version of allison doc that is available without subscription?

    I guess I'm going under the bus today to check on the physical wiring.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    ed..

    im not sure? id have to get mine out and see what lights come on, the nexiq gets its power from the power pins on the vehicle diagnostic port, it will not work plugged into the USB port by itself, its important that the power and ground pins are wired into the proper places on your 9 pin round connector.

    It won’t work with computer or Bluetooth or on another vehicle. It’s like it’s locked up or something.

    What’s up Christopher… my Nexiq will it start up with just the power light. Both Bluetooth and power light up simultaneously. Have you ever had an issue like this?

    Good evening Christopher… sorry for the delayed response. I didn’t realize you had responded until now.

    I have a large, single ECM dt530e military surplus. I have the schematic and have labeled and terminated the 1939 and 1708 wires in my bus bar along with MD3060 wires as well. (Fully custom project) This said, do I need to wire 2 separate j1939 connectors or will the NEXIQ receive ECM/TCM communicate through 1 since they are terminated together?

    Good afternoon Christopher… let me preface this by saying I’m a complete rookie and have gotten this far with a lot of research and help.

    After getting screwed by a local mechanic, i took it upon myself to tackling and engine swap on my own with the help of great friend. We’ve put a DT530/MD3060 in a Gillig phantom. A completely custom set up from ECM pigtails terminated into a weatherproof box, new gauges, etc. Long story short, I purchased a Nexiq USB Link 2, based mostly off of your posts and recommendations. We are getting ready to wire in the J1939 connections and I’m curious: do I need a J1939 connector for both transmission and engine with a splitter? Looking at the engine and Transmision schematics individually, I don’t see a common connector between both. However, when I watched a Nexiq video, the interface scan had both transmission and engine diagnostics from a single connector. I’m sure I’m missing something and I hope you can help.

    I just read one of your quotes on a thread dude. This gave me an idea. It was about electric power on a schoolie and you mentioned wind turbines.

    I have considered that a vertical wind turbine is more space efficient than a standard rotary wind turbine generator. Well, this inspired me by what you said, what if you installed across the top of your schoolie an entire wind farm of vertical turbines? It makes the most use of wasted space atop of the bus, and if you drive it anywhere you are recuperating tons of wasted energy back to a battery bank?

    What do ya think?

    I'll try the 9 pin...that would be great if it connects to the TCM data. Any chance you have a link to the DOC software you 'found'? The software actually works but only as a 30 day trial. The Chinese version comes with a registry key that is supposed to automatically input the registration code on start up...but the reg key is what won't work for Win10 apparently.
